Listening to 938 live is an engaging, enriching and gainful activity.

I habitually tune in to 938 live almost every morning is not only because it keeps me abreast of the latest local and international news but it also allows me to better discern opposing viewpoints on various local issues brought up in "Talkback". I have learnt a tremendous lot about how government policies can differently affect the lives of my fellow Singaporeans from different strata of society.

While I understand the essentiality of LTA traffic reports to motorist, I do wish that they could cut down on the frequency they do their reports so that programs are not interrupted too many times.

Although I don't really tune in to 93.8FM, my dad usually does, and it's the default radio station whenever he starts his car. aside from providing live news updates and news on the go, I didn't that their song playlists are quite cool as well.

I find that their songs are quite suitable for a long drive and quite soothing in a traffic jam. Their deejays are fluent in language and show quickness of mind whenever they horseplay. I'm surprised that they haven't won many awards, but I'm sure it's sue to the fact that many people are still unaware of their quality programming.

I used to have the perception that 938Live is like the news at 930pm, only an audio version of it. I could not have been more wrong. It is a station that's much more than that, take away the traffic and breaking news reports, and you got yourself an educational platform. Tune in every afternoon, and you will get to hear up-and-coming entrepreneurs sharing their views about business and finance. From talk shows that discuss local trends (such as the maid and NSF incident) to guessing games, it is an extremely interesting radio station indeed. Don't be fooled into assuming it's nothing if boring.

The only english news channel supplying all the updated radio news, it must be pretty pressurizing for the reporters and back stage crew alike. Having to put together the news in such a short period of time and to report it so as to keep the nation updated, I am truly impressed with the work rate and the consistency of the channel.

Listening to the news in the morning is really such a refreshing breeze as I would not have to hover my head within the papers in my sleepy state just to get the headlines of the day. I appreciate the summaries that the radio station provides because it is simple, straight to the point and at the same time informative. Traffic conditions are also frequently being broadcast, hence making it easier on the roads so as to avoid the traffic jams. I find it amusing at times when I tune in at unorthodox hours, as I would usually find myself listening to amateur news announcers on air. Although they are not too bad, they tend to fumble quite a lot and it does make the whole channel seem a little unprofessional as the stability of the radio broadcast is not kept throughout the span of the day.

That being said, being on air live is sure pressurizing. In addition, having to articulate and enunciate the news for such long periods of time would definitely be taxing. Hence, the channel has really done a great job in maintaining its composure to constantly keeping the nation updated.
